Will apartment rental demand be the new normal for most folks?

Some of the places where median price is down will surprise you!

When I saw the latest list of cities where median price of homes was down, I was pretty surprised. There are some cities on this list that have been prominent positive performers. However, I don't think this list should necessarily tell you that the markets in these areas should be avoided. We will talk about that and see if it actually means an opportunity!

We will also cover the following articles:

We called it, mortgage lending risk is up - like early 2000s up

Yes, we are lending like its 2003 and we should be worried about that! The latest numbers shows that mortgage lending risk is on par with that time when we were paving the way to the big bust of 2007-2008.

We will also take some time to chat about Phoenix - since that tends to be one of our canary in a coal mine cities. We also take a little time to discuss strategies to battle markets that just don't have any inventory.

No... and if that is your plan, you need a new plan. Home ownership should NOT be your principal path to wealth.

Ok, I know I have said this before, but now it is even more true. We are officially screwed. Not like a little bit screwed, but extremely screwed. We have embraced the exact playbook even more than before with Ben Carsons "Lets loan more people money!" tour that has been going on this week. It is absolutely crazy and for todays show, you will get to experience the RebelBroker as he is when he has blood shooting out of his eyes.

We will also chat about appraisals, new crazy loans and the latest news on loan defaults. Buckle up. It's going to be a bumpy ride today!

Here is an encore performance of a past show!

One of the more common questions I get is "What is the difference between a real estate agent and a Realtor?". Well, today we will explore the differences and also have a bit of a conversation about whether or not you can get along without one when you buy or sell a home. My opinions on this one tend to upset a whole lot of real estate agents. However, the ones that actually do the job should not be worried!

We have record high credit scores - this is NOT a good thing.

Get ready folks. You are about to see tons of headlines about how awesome it is that we are experiencing record high credit scores. They will talk about how it will help grow the economy and how it will make everything wonderful. Sadly, this is not the case and it is the same basic phenomenon that got us into trouble the last time. It all feels so similar to those days that I keep looking around to see if there is still a Bush in the White House or if Nickelback has to top hit on the charts.

FICO score changes to benefit 12 million sub-prime borrowers.

Yeah, you read that right. Now remember, whenever they talk about appealing to more lenders or improving credit scores, they are NOT talking about folks who already have a good credit score. By definition they are giving an artificial boost to borrowers that just a few months ago would not have qualified for a loan base don their FICO score. This is occurring with NO change to their financial knowledge, credit history, income or ability to manage their money. It is just about tweaking numbers to make things appear better without any change to what the number is supposed to measure.

Sorry, more nightmare fuel for todays show. We will also talk about these:

How bad could the Health California Act be for real estate?

It might be easier to ask how bad the Healthy California Act could be for everything. We will take some time today to talk about the act, its costs and how much that would mean in terms of additional taxes for Californians.

We will try to measure the impact by the increasing number of people who would rather leave the state and how this additional tax would potentially make it impossible for most families to keep paying the rent or mortgage that they can currently afford.

There is also some news on defaults which we will take a look at.
